Could be worse. Could be 3 strikes and you are out like Mediacom. For life.
Well, since after the 6th strike, they do absolutely nothing, cutting it to 3 strikes would actually be better for the repeat
yes because totally innocent people will be falsely accused 6 consecutive times.
I'm sure that was meant sarcastically, but I absolutely believe it will happen. Setting aside the technical complications in proving who downloaded a given file, the MPAA has proven time and again that they will claim rights they do not have.
Even after being singled out by the US Copyright Office for being a shining example of fair use, the guy is STILL fighting to keep his videos up. Do you honestly believe the automated file-a-strike system they plan to use isn't going to repeatedly flag content they don't have the rights?
